Uniformed Organisations

Saint Martin's has strong, historic links with the Girlguiding and Scouting uniformed organisations.

The 4th Barnehurst (St. Martin’s) Scout Group is a sponsored open group established in 1938 shortly after the church was built. The groups is very active running a number of units.  They have their own headquarters, built on the church's land, and also their own field, used for a variety of activities, adjacent to their headquarters.

Girlguiding Barnehurst District is not sponsored but are also very active. They meet in the Church Hall (AKA the Huxtable Hall) and also use the (relatively) nearby council owned Parkside Community Centre (1 Parkside Cross, Barnehurst. DA7 6ND).
